This is a cool, refreshing frozen salad perfect to go with your Valentine’s Day meal. It is especially attractive if you have a heart shaped log in which to freeze the salad. If you don’t have a heart shaped container, the mixture can be poured into paper cup-lined muffin pans, individual gelatin cups or other small dishes.

Frozen Fruit Salad

3 oz. package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup crushed pineapple, drained
1 -10 oz. package frozen strawberries with juice
1 banana
1 cup frozen whipped topping, thawed

Combine cream cheese and sugar in a large bowl. Drain pineapple and add 1/4 cup pineapple to bowl. Add strawberries. Slice and quarter banana. Fold in thawed whipped topping.

Pour into individual cups or into tubes for freezing.

Freeze until firm.

Pouring the mixture into the empty pineapple can will work, too. Just don’t cut your fingers on the edge. When removing, dip can in hot water for a little while to loosen salad, open other end, and slip salad out of can. Cut into individual slices.

The salad will be a pretty pink color. If it has been molded in a heart shape, this will make a very impressive dish to place before the King or Queen of Hearts.
